I will be inTwo Harbors over the weekend of the 25th. I shall report back. It should be gone by then.
It's kind of like tearing up $100 bills while standing in a cold shower.

Wow! Really sad.

In retrospect one will have to wonder if opening the engine compartment didn't provide the fuel (more oxygen) to make the small fire big. Also have to wonder why a 65' Hatteras did not have a fire suppression system in the engine compartment (or maybe it did not work?)?

Fortunately no one was hurt. The boat can be replaced.
